Give your getaway a jumpstart by planning for it all year long.
Choosing the perfect date for your vacation can save you thousands of dollars. Consider taking your trip just after peak season ends. You'll still enjoy the beautiful weather, but your airfare and lodging costs will see a significant drop.
Experts also recommend booking your flight 54 days before your departure date to get the best prices.
When researching vacation destinations, check the local exchange rates. Choose a place that will allow your dollar to go farther, and you'll have more to spend with the same amount of cash!
Don't book a flight, hotel stay or car rental without checking your credit card points first. You might have enough miles to pay for a large chunk of your trip.
When booking hotel stays, do a quick search to determine if they offer a loyalty program for return customers. You might land yourself a good discount just for using the same hotel chain twice!
Don't make any vacation decisions without first doing careful research. If you found a resort you love, check out their online presence to see if they offer airline discounts or credits. See if you can find a local who'd be willing to swap houses with you while you're on vacation. Check Groupon for instant discounts on attractions and restaurants in the area.
Don't forget to enjoy your vacation! If something doesn't go according to plan, let it slide. Leave the everyday pressure at home and just fully relax.
It's also important to unplug. Stop snapping pictures and take the earbuds out. Let go of the compulsive need to capture every moment on camera and take the time just to be. You deserve to enjoy every bit of your vacation!
